Seasonal Allergies

Hello, I am 37 year old male. I reside in NJ, United States. I've had seasonal allergies since childhood but they became worse over last 5-6 years. I'm allergic to freshly cut grass, tree pollen, dust mites, and weeds. My allergy symptoms include lethargy, tiredness, irritability, unable to focus/concentrate, weak voice, emotional imbalance, body aches- especially legs, nasal stuffiness, feeling of insufficient oxygen while breathing, forehead pain, green/yellow mucus early morning after getting out of bed on bad allergy days, and sore throat on bad allergy days.

I used to take Allegra for temporary relief of allergies. I have been a strong believer of alternative medicine. I stumbled upon a homeopathic over the counter medicine, Allercetin Allergy & Sinus, in March this year and thank God I do not have to take Allegra any longer. Nose irrigation also seems to help a lot. However on bad allergy days, i am confined to in-doors. I cannot open my car windows on very nice spring days. I spent few hours outside last weekend and developed a sinus infection. Please help.

Allercetin has the following ingredients:
Ambrosia artemisiaefolia 3X (ragweed), Histaminum Hydrochloricum 12X (histamine hydrochloride), Quercetin 12X, Succinicum Acidum 12X (succinic acid), Euphrasia officinalis 6X (eyebright), Kali Iodatum 6X (potassium iodide), Sabadilla 6X (cevadilla seed), Sticta Pulmonaria 6X (lungwort).Lactose and Magnesium Stearate.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dear Backagainom,

Allergies are your immune system out of whack and over-reacting
to the items mentioned as if they are a threat to your system.

The problem with taking combination remedies for
chronic problems is you can't tell which remedy is the one
that is helping.

You need to be looked at in totality to determine what
remedy or series of remedies is going to get your immune
system back to normal.

You need to fill out the answers to a form and put them
on this thread. http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/188925

Please give some detail on form answer about when this began,
what was going on with you at that time. Someone will
help you out with suggestions. Many times the allergies take
some time to finally cure, as I had similar to you and it took
a year of several remedies, and they were finally gone for good.

Thank you Simone717 for pointing me to the questionnaire. Please see my response below:

1. Describe your main suffering?

Main suffering is as a result of seasonal allergies. The symptoms are tiredness, mood swings, irritability, emotional imbalance, body aches, nasal stuffiness. sinus pressure, green/yellow mucous upon waking up on days when sysmptoms are worse, sore throat when symptoms are worse.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?

Pain in some joints- wrists, ankles, hands, joints often snap.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

feeling of depression, and loss of motivation/ambition.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?

Depressed, don’t feel like doing anything, very tired, low oxygen, weak voice, body aches, sore throat

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

I’ve had most of these symptoms around fresh cut grass since childhood. It all seems to have become worse 1 year after we moved into our current residence. I started cutting my own grass when we moved into this house (about 6 years ago).
There is a lot of reserve land around our house which has some farms, many trees and weeds.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

Generally symptoms are worse in teh morning and evening. however it depends more on my exposure to pollen, dust, etc... instead of time of day.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?

fresh cut grass, pollen, strong gusts of AC cold (sometimes heat hot air)- i.e. in office buildings at times, and dust aggravate the suffering. Rinsing my nose (nasal irrigation) and general allergy medicine (Allercetin) seems to help ameliorate the symptoms.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
Yes, external stimuli seems to make it worse. exposure to fresh cut grass, pollen, dust, and gusts of cold/hot ac/heat air.

I tend to feel better in dry weather. I’ve noticed symptoms are better in very hot weather and very cold weather.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

I am mild, humble, agreeable, nervous suspicious, quite, sometimes low self confidence.

Not a huge impact. little nervous during thunderstorm and relief after it’s over.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
Yes, by my wife.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
Yes, i’m very sensitive to smell and noise.

weeping, talking to one self etc?

Typical habit would be planning, day dreaming...

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
I feel very strongly about my family, and children. I love my wife.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
I’ve been planning a move to another country. Sometimes i fear that it may not be a good move based on feedback from others around me.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
I used to crave sugary, sweet things for last few years. It has changed since i became physically very active again for last year or so.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?
I believe it’s normal. I tend to drink water far more than normal/average people.

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
I believe it’s normal.

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?
too many dairy products or certain kinds of cheese tend to upset my stomach.

I sweat more than most people. Head tends to sweat most.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
Bowel movement is normal, about two times daily. I have not carefully observed stool type but generally since I became active it tends to be more mushy stool than hard or sausage like.

I generally sleep well, average 7 or more hours. I usually sleep on right or left side. sometimes face down.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
yes, i am very satisfied sexually.

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all?
I’ve way too humble about everything I’m blessed with. I tend to second guess myself often.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?

I have taken Allegra 24 hours for last few years. This year I’ve started to take Allercetin to treat allergy symptoms. Allercetin has the following ingredients: Ambrosia Artemisiaefolia (Ragweed) 30 X, Histaminum Hydrochloricum 12x (histamine hydrochloride), Quercetin (12X), Succinicum Acidum 12X (succinic acid), Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright) 6X (eyebright), Kali Iodatum 6X (potassium iodide), Sabadilla (Cevadilla Seed) 6X, Sticta Pulmonaria (Lungwort) 6X, Lactose (Milk), Magnesium Stearate

would like you to look at this prescription post for
allergies by Rishimba- for general hay fever.


You do match other symptoms of this remedy, and the person
who took it was 90% better in 10 days.

I would try this and report in after a few days on how
it is going. You can order the Baryta Carb 200c off this
site- abc remedies store- takes around 3 to 4 days.
simone717 last decade
Hello, thank you Simone717 for your post. I believe Baryta Carb is mostly used to treat mentally dwarf children or for old age. I can understand some throat and other benefits of Baryta Carb but frankly don't think it's the best remedy for my case. Please keep in mind the depression or loss of ambition is caused by allergy. I'm usually very ambitious, focused, and results oriented otherwise.
Look forward to more posts.
backagainom last decade
Hi- I was not looking at this as a constitutional remedy
for you-more like a preventative-I was surprised how well
and fast it worked on the other person ( who was not
a dwarf person or old, it matches hay fever symptoms)

I am sure other people will respond.
simone717 last decade
Take rhus tox 30 and silicea 6x 5 tabs of both three times a day . Feed back after 7 days pls.
anuj srivastava last decade
Hello Anuj, I ordered Baryta Carb this morning based on simonec's advice and others success with allergies with this product. I believe the remedy you prescribed is for my secondary joints issue, can you please confirm?
Can you pls also confirm if it's to take baryta carb and your prescribed remedies during the same time period? Thank you.
backagainom last decade
Dear backagain,

It is preferable that you take one remedy at a time,
don't mix things, unless a person is a very
experienced homeopath.

I sent an email to Dr. Mohla on here who has a poster
name of akshaymohl to see if he could come
up with another prescription for you that was
constitutional- don't know if he has time or not.

Try the baryta carb by itself-don't mix it.

you first try what simone has prescribed.
anuj srivastava last decade
Thank you both for your replies and recomendations. I will try Baryta Carb first and keep this thread updated.
backagainom last decade
Hello Simone,
Baryta Carb was very effective in temporarily treating the allergies. I used it for about ten days and i felt much better. Please advise next steps. should I order additional Baryta Carb to keep allergies under control? do you have a constitutional remedy in mind that I could take along with Baryta Carb?
Thank you for your recomendations and Regards.
backagainom last decade
Hi Backagain,

Glad you got some relief.

How many doses a day were you doing?

And I guess you ran out of it ?

Have you gone for any time period now without it?

If so, what is happening?

What are your symptoms at this time?
simone717 last decade
Hello Simone,
Initially three doses but i found myself doing up to 4 some days.
Yes, I ran out of it after about 11 days.
I've been without it for last 5 days. I've been taking allercetin but i still feel little tired, slowed down, nasal congestion, and sinus pressure on top of eyes and forehead.
backagainom last decade
These are my thoughts on this. You should not have to
take it every day. I wanted to see if you could get relief
and then go for constitutional prescribing in the fall when
symptoms subside due to the weather change and it is not
so intense. It is always better to go to a homeopath in person,
who can then use all tools available due to seeing you- to
start to work with you on a constitutional level, as you have
had the grass allergy for so long. If you want to let me know
where you are in NJ or close to NYC I can look up some homeopaths
for you.

For now, how about trying Anuj's prescrption of Rhus tox and
silicea and report back after the 7 days of using it, see how
far he can take you on curing this online.

Two other things I would do during these times to boost your
system up and give you energy. Go to whole foods or the
health store and get Wellness formula. This is a herb vitamin
formula my family has used for 20 years and it will keep you
from getting the sinus and low energy and sick during these
times. The other is also at whole foods but way cheaper on
amazon-New Chapter lifeshield immunity.This is a reishi
mushroom food powder in capsules. I only like this one
formula from this particular company. You don't feel anything,
you just feel well, like yourself on a good day. Just take a couple of
those once a day. $16 for 60 caps on Amazon vs $30 for 30 caps
in whole foods. They will make a big difference in your energy,
and it is simply food.

Great, than you Simone. I will look into and build your recommendations as a dietary supplement.
I am familiar with two good homeopaths in NJ, in fact few of my my family members (including my son) are under her supervision.
Appreciate all the good advise.
